Soon after Kanye’s ‘Bound 2′ performance on the same stage, Drake premiered a brand new track titled ‘Too Much’ last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Accompanied by Sampha (our boy’s still killing it) this track shows Drizzy getting more personal and deep than ever before. Driven by the soft but powerful piano beat of Sampha (who also, quite beautifully, sings the hook) Drake addresses that the fame and fortune he’s gained through his successful career has distanced him from friends and family with whom he was close to before. The performance comes one day after the release of the hyped-about track ‘Wu-Tang Forever‘ his homage to the legendary Clan – who don’t seem too happy about the joint. Sampha was previously featured on ‘The Motion‘ which came out back in June.

Prior to his performance on the show, Drake was interviewed by Jimmy Fallon, speaking about the Nothing Was The Same cover art, the collaborators he worked with and the tour that will follow. Watch the full interview above and skip to 5:20 for the performance.
